Swiss watchmaker HYT has debuted its latest timepiece: the Moon Runner White Neon.

The exclusive model blends the latest iteration of light-charged Super-LumiNova®, created by the leading Swiss laboratory RC Tritec, with a hybrid ceramic and fluorescent component called Tec Light® on its exterior. Meanwhile, interior parts, including the dial, the numerals, the minute hand and the inscriptions on the indicator disks reflect a similar luminescent glow.

The brand notes that the watch is inspired by the “intricacies and secrets of black holes, neutron stars or pulsars,” with the goal of making an equally impressive statement during the day and at night. On top of its striking luminosity, the model is equipped with a 48 mm Hydro Carbon and Tec Light® case with a sapphire crystal dome and opposing dial that drives that mission home.

“Can a watch be beautiful in the dark?” asks Davide Cerrato, CEO and creative director of HYT, in a statement. “This new Moon Runner White Neon was designed to meet a major challenge: to offer a watch that is as attractive and interesting in the dark as it is in the light. To achieve this, it has incorporated the power of hyper-light sources from outer space into its design.”

The Moon Runner White Neon will be produced in a limited edition of 10, in celebration of HYT’s first 10 years of watchmaking. The timepiece will be available exclusively on the brand’s website, for a limited time between July 15 and August 1, with a price of CHF 130,000 (approximately $133,000 USD).

Elsewhere in watches, Billionaire Boys Club and Bamford London have collaborated on a new “Rocket” GMT.
